Guess who's back?

Well I'm back. Yes it has been a while, and you probably thought that I'd given up on blogging, didn't you? I cannot lie, I did contemplate it. So much has happened since my last blog entry that suffice it is to say, blogging was the last thing on my mind. I wish I could write it all down here as a cathartic measure, you know? But 1) it really wouldn't be relevant and 2) I'd have to write a book! So let's just say, I just learned that life does not revolve around money although it does help. If I can pick and choose, I'd be penniless if I could be content.

It's funny how you trudge through the motions of your life, trying to sock away everything you can for the future, that it becomes a routine. A dull, boring, and sometimes toxic routine. And you fail to realize that as important as the future is, so is the present! The present is a present we cannot save for later. The present should be indulged in now, because pretty soon it becomes the past, and you can never get those moments back, and then there's only regret. Yeah, pretty corny and preachy I know, but that's what I learned, and am still learning.

Money is not important. Life is. Love is. Human connections are. Memories are. So live, love, connect and enjoy the memories!


  1. Good to see you back!!!

    It funny the life that a blogger lives, you get close to other bloggers just by reading their content! And after a while, you feel a bond with certain ones, based on their writing techniques! So in a nutshell, I was worried about you in my own way...

    Welcome back, glad to see you our here again! :)

  2. Welcome back! And I do hope you stay and update your posts often. We're all still here, and of course it's by our numbers that get our group really going strong.

    I do understand how you feel and you're definitely right, we all need to live the present and live our life to the fullest. I definitely agree with that, and when it comes to money, it's actually only a vehicle or a tool that we use to help us live a better life, or help us spend more with our family and friends.

    So in short, money is just something their to help us out in getting what we need and want.

    Well, hope to read more from you soon.

  3. I am glad you are back. Sounds like your life experiences are going to be fodder for some great writing. Looking forward to it, but must say that the phrase "money isn't important. life is" has piqued my curiosity. Taking the time to smell the roses, in my book, is a lot more fun when you have some money than when you don't.

  4. Welcome back! Just found your blog not too long ago when I did a 200,000+ round of up PF bloggers. Hope to see you back in action soon!
